Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Railroad Earth: Like or not like?

Polls seem to be popular at the moment so thought I'd post my own: on a scale of 1 to 10 (1=Hate them, 10=Love them) how do you feel about Railroad Earth?

Below are some videos / soundclips if you're not familiar with the band.

I rate 'em a 9 or 9.5 out of 10. Here's my favorite show from them:

It's been uploaded here for a long time and it .shn files so you can't stream it, but it's well worth the download. It was my second RRE show and was webcast on the now defunct Digital Club Network, so I'm hoping that someday the video of the show will surface.

You also can't go wrong with any of their Floydfest recordings. RRE always "brings it" to Floydfest, even when they have to fly back from the Fuji Festival in Japan to make their Floydfest time slot...

that being said, this is my all-time favorite RRE show...

Have always enjoyed them but was a big fan of their earlier incarnation "From Good Homes".

I love them, have seen 40 or so shows since 2005. I don't think their best days are behind them at all, but I like the gritty side more than the straight bluegrass of the earliest years. Unfortunately, the BEST shows I have seen them play were never recorded, e.g High sierra late night 2010 and the Fillmore Dec. 2009 shows. but check out the Aspen shows from March 2011.

Yes. Margaret and I used to go 2 Friday's every month in our 20's. We'd have a good Mexican meal(w/ beer for about $20 for 2 people) and walk around the corner to the B St. Bistro and watch the Collette Bros. or any band that might have been playing. We felt so grown up.

Ygnacio, the guy with the mullet, is the son and a huge movie buff. He used to tell us all about movies which we had no plans to see with great enthusiasm.

There used to be a Vietnamese place called Hop Sinh, but it closed a few years back.

Love 'em loads. I'm obsessing these days about good songwriting and singing, and Todd Sheaffer's been one of the best. I think their best days might be behind them, though (up to about 2006); the newer songs don't seem so rich. Thinking about it, I'd say the same about Reid Genauer and Assembly Of Dust.

This nugget has Phil sitting in:

This solo/duo show by Todd is a favourite (and yours Daddy D as well, I see!):

Also a fan of Reid, Strangefolk & AOD, & unfortunately may have to agree w/ your sentiments about best days being behind them, though I hope we're wrong. Not so certain about Todd & RRE, though certainly he's written & played some amazing stuff over the years, so he's set the bar pretty damn high....

Love the solo show you provided the link to....listening to Todd sing "Let It Rock" as I type this...he sounds so damn good!

Second most popular band on the IA based on my listening habits. I really like them. Saw them twice and would definitely recommend their live shows.
